Content boards John Hawkes noir 'Too Late'

26 August 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Content Media has acquired international sales to Dennis Hauck’s neo-noir detective thriller and will host a private buyers screening in Toronto.

John Hawkes stars alongside Crystal Reed, Dichen Lachman, Natalie Zea, Jeff Fahey and Robert Forster in the non-linear story in the vein of Pulp Fiction, Short Cuts and Memento about a private eye on a perilous missing persons case.

Too Late premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival earlier in the summer.

Too Late is a cinephile gold dream, with stunning 35mm cinematography, white hot dialogue and a masterful performance from Academy Award nominee John Hawkes,” said Content’s president of film Jamie Carmichael.

“Add to that the smoky clubs, glamorous mansions, scenic vistas and retro-cool drive-in theatres that make Los Angeles iconic and you have a unique, ultra-hip noir thriller to die for.”

Feature debutant Dennis Hauck directed from his screenplay and produced with Alexandra Barreto and John Taylor Feltner.
